This has been rumored for weeks now, but it appears to be semi-official today:
Glenn Beck will be leaving his Fox News show, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be leaving Fox News. Glenn Beck’s production company Mercury Radio Arts and Fox News announced Wednesday that Beck would be transitioning off his daily program to concentrate on developing “a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’s digital properties.”
I’ll miss Beck’s show though, to be completely honest, I think his radio show is better. There’s a lot of humor on the radio show that, for the most part, doesn’t make it onto the Fox show. Still, I thought his Fox show was often thought provoking and excellent. He was willing to dig into stories in a way that went beyond Shep Smith reading the headlines. Even when I didn’t agree with his take it was far more interesting than most of what is on cable these days. Plus he has all the right enemies. Anyone who can inspire the highly funded, left-wing jihad that Beck inspires must be doing something right.
But Beck has been gearing up not gearing down. I suspect there’s more to this story that we’ll learn about in the next few days.
